Finally Friday West Coast Bass with Formless

Boy, if these syncopated and grimey sounds don’t reflect how my week has been going then I don’t know what will. BUT it’s friggin Friday and I’m celebrating with another home slice from the Cali DJ days: Formless

We met at a ranchero rave about ten years ago. Such a polite and respectful fellow musician and a dope ass DJ on top of it all. For the past years I’ve been checking out his mixes and one thing I noticed each time is that he was playing music I’ve never heard before.. pretty much every single time and this has always stuck with me.

Today we’re gonna check out a double feature of West Coast Bass. I could lean in and call it trap but I won’t 😀 … Back when I was DJing in California, Formless and I played similar styles. He’s always been playing all kinds of music but at the electro shows I played at he also played electro as far as I can remember. It’s interesting to see how our styles morphed over the years (and with the location). I tend to be playing tech house and deep house nowadays and he has become even more versatile never sticking to a strict four to the floor beat. These two mixes are a perfect example of how unconventional Formless can get in constructing his live sets. Awesome job, man. At some points in your mixes I didn’t even know what was happening anymore… 😀

I am almost certain that the next mix he’s going to come out with is going to be a completely different genre, maybe even one we haven’t heard of yet.

Now stomp out this weekend with these mixes. Tracklists are below.
